"We will proceed to carry new Windows products to marketplace throughout different monitor measurements, such as a new eight -inch tablet and ten -inch pill coming this holiday getaway," a assertion on its web-site go through.

The business noted it is no more time selling the ThinkPad 8 in the US but that it has bought out of the Miix eight -inch. On top of that, it boldly claimed "we are not obtaining out of the smaller - monitor Home windows pill organization " as has been reported.

Pc Globe very first caught wind of the information and Raymond Gorman, a Lenovo spokesperson, defined the Chinese electronics company was turning its back on small Windows tablets immediately after tepid revenue of the ThinkPad 8 and Miix two.

Now Lenovo is shifting to end revenue of equally eight -inch styles although the organization moves its remaining stock of ThinkPad 8 tablets to building countries. Supposedly the pill will be available to other markets which includes Brazil, China and Japan.

Because mid-June, the ThinkPad eight has been bought out on Lenovo's website we've contacted the firm to find out how new the decision to phase away from little screen equipment really is, and will update this tale as before long as we hear back again.

Flawed gadgets

In our possess overview, we identified the ThinkPad 8 to be an awesome 1080p, 8 -inch Home windows pill that was fraught with concerns, generating it far too unstable to use leisurely or productively.

It can be for these good reasons we can imagine why Microsoft could have made a decision to terminate the announcement of the Surface area Mini at the final minute. At the exact same time it appears the flood of small Windows equipment Microsoft hoped to drive alongside with free of charge copies of Windows eight. one would not be happening immediately after all, at least not in the way the company envisioned.

Go large or go in other places

Although Lenovo is leaving modest - display screen home windows tablets powering it still has options to develop and offer ten -inch equipment : "In North The usa, we are observing more powerful interest in the more substantial monitor dimensions for Windows tablets and are happy with first buyer desire for the ThinkPad ten," Gorman explained.

Lenovo also strategies to continue to promote the 10. one -inch variation of the Miix two. We're also pleased to say the Lenovo ten received leading marks in our most recent overview as 1 of the most multipurpose small business tablets around.
